The following is a verse of the song Stay up by George Nozuka.
Let me start with a soft caress
Wanna show you I'm not like the rest
So put me to the test
Anything that you feel let it go
Wanna take things nice and slow
So baby lose control
I want this, more than I want anything, anything
In the first line, what does soft mean when it's used to describe a caress, does it mean gentle? From what I've looked up, there are several definitions that seems applicable to the context, however, its example provided describes something else. For example, Dictionary.com sense #4 defines soft as "producing agreeable sensations; pleasant or comfortable", but its example given is soft slumber. Sense #8 defines soft as "gentle or mild" but its example is soft breezes. So what does soft mean used in this context?
